Baltimore County businesses that let customers bring their own alcohol would need a "BYOB" license under legislation spurred by complaints about hookah lounges that are raucous late into the night. The bill, introduced Monday by Lutherville Republican Todd Huff, would make all BYOB establishments close by 2 a.m. The businesses would have to apply for licenses from the county and could face fines of up to $500 for not doing so. Huff said he introduced the bill because of "multiple complaints" about hookah lounges that allegedly become loud very late and don't enforce laws on underage drinking.

In the 12 years since it was designated an Arts & Entertainment District by the state government, Baltimore's Station North has blossomed. The amalgam of neighborhoods just north of Pennsylvania Station has become a destination for all things artsy and one of the city's hottest food areas. Bottega, a tiny BYOB that opened last year in the western corner of the district, is one of the restaurants attracting foodie crowds - and for good reason. The ever-changing menu, inspired by Tuscan flavors, manages to be creative without pretense.

Any craft-beer devotee will tell you the hardest thing about visiting a craft brewery is getting up to leave. Delaware's Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is encouraging more people to stay by going beyond the welcome mat to the spare bedroom - or 16. Having gained a following for its beers, Dogfish Head captured the attention of foodies by integrating flavorful ingredients into its brews. Now it is breaking new ground this summer by opening the Dogfish Inn, a brewery-themed boutique hotel, to accommodate its perpetual influx of craft-brew heads.

Meet 27 opened this spring in Remington, right next door to Sweet Sin bakery. Meet 27 is a shifting-perspective, elephant-and-the-blind-men type place, part BYOB corner bar, part old-school health-food restaurant and part arty cafe. Here's the review of Meet 27 .

For this week's weekend dining review of Republic Noodle, Kit Waskorn Pollard subs in for John Houser III. Republic Noodle opened in September just south of Cross Street Market in the Riverside neighborhood. If you walk by Republic Noodle when it's closed, a roll down security door makes it look like a discount tennis shoe store. Not so, Republic Noodle is a fine little BYOB, serving a manageable pan-Asian menu. The owners are David Lynch and Christopher Boylan, and the chef de cuisine is Henry Hong, formerly of Suzie's Soba.

The hookah lounge, a staple of Middle Eastern culture, has now gained a foothold in American culture, drawing the attention of legislators and health advocates across the country worried about the impact of these purveyors of a new type of tobacco smoking. Typically, the patrons are young adults and college students. What attracts them to these smoking bars is not just to puff on sweetened tobacco from an ornate water pipe, but to relax with friends and, frequently, to drink alcohol they bring in themselves.

The pilot and crew of US Airways Flight 1549 - the "Miracle on the Hudson" heroes - were making the media rounds last week, from 60 Minutes to Larry King Live to New York City, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave the pilot the keys to the city. They certainly deserve it. But while the crew has been in the spotlight, their employer has quietly added yet another new fee for their passengers. One we certainly don't deserve. Tomorrow, US Airways will begin charging fliers $7 for a pillow and blanket.

The Corner, a new restaurant in Hampden, took over the location where a diner had operated since the beginning of time. The Corner has things like escargot, moules frites and roasted monkfish on the menu, so, naturally, folks fretted about The Avenue losing another piece of its flinty soul. Don't worry. The Corner has the makings of a weird-Hampden classic. In these early months — it opened in early March — it's as awkwardly charming as a newborn calf, and part of an evening's pleasure is watching it stay upright.

Bottega, a just-opened restaurant in Charles North, is not one of your bigger restaurants. "We know that we are tiny," is how owner Adrien Aeschliman describes the new BYOB. He said his goal with Bottega was to create "a place I would want next door to my home. " Bottega seats about 15 comfortably, and mostly at a communal dining table. On its first official Friday night of operation, the restaurant was full, for the most part, with industry types and other well-wishers.  Bottega has done little in the way of publicity, but it does have a handsome minimalist website and  well-maintained Facebook page , with photographs documenting the frequently, if not daily, changing lineup on Bottega's chalkboard menu.

Every time we turn around, Hampden has a new restaurant. The newest addition to the neighborhood's lineup is Souvlaki, a teeny tiny Greek spot that opened on the Avenue in mid-December. Owned by Dmitri and Elli Taramas (natives of Greece by way of New York), Souvlaki's great food and welcoming vibe give Baltimoreans from all over the city one more reason to head to Hampden. Scene & Decor Just before 7 o'clock on a chilly Thursday night, most of Souvlaki's tables were filled and the phone rang, repeatedly, with carryout orders.

Corner BYOB in Hampden is offering a $30 Filipino Fiesta Menu during its regular dinner hours on Dec. 3. The dinner is a benefit for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Visayas region of the Philippines on Nov. 7. The menu will be designed by Sony Florendo, who owned the well-remembered Sony's Philippine-Asian restaurants in Baltimore back in the 1980s/'90s. The dinner is being coordinated by Corner BYOB co-owner Cecille Fenix, who has roots and family in the affected area.

Walk down 36th Street in Hampden and you could easily miss it. Even a stroll down the less busy Elm Avenue, where the inconspicuous entrance is located, could lead to a missed opportunity. But while the Other Corner Charcuterie Bar, an adjoining bar-meets-cafe companion to the adventurous Corner BYOB restaurant (which opened in March 2011), may exist quietly in the shadows, it was well worth uncovering last Tuesday night. The space charms you from the first step inside. Behind the bar, aged meats hang from the ceiling on oversized hooks, as if Ron Swanson had decorated a Christmas tree.

It's been a busy three years for Marta Ines Quintana, owner of Towson's Havana Road. There's her thriving catering business, a line of fully prepared packaged dinners Quintana developed for supermarket sales, and a cookbook and television show - both are works in progress that will showcase traditional Cuban restaurants as well as Quintana's contemporary spins on them. You might think all of that would distract Quintana from the restaurant itself - a bright spot on a drab Pennsylvania Avenue dining strip.

Fans at next year's Preakness will not be allowed to bring alcohol bought outside the track into the grandstand and clubhouse areas of Pimlico Race Course, ending a long-standing tradition. The change, confirmed yesterday by the Maryland Jockey Club, means that all alcoholic beverages consumed by grandstand and clubhouse patrons will have to be purchased at Pimlico. Spectators will still be allowed to bring beer in cans into the Preakness infield, and racing officials said they aren't considering any changes to that policy.

Scorpion, anyone? How about silkworms and mole crickets? Corner BYOB has them on the menu, for one night only, at Tuesday night's Gastronaut Society Dinner. Bernard Dehaene's menu starts, innocently enough, with a parsnip and potato vichyssoise with escargot confit in duckfat. Then, things get alarming -- the next course is an herb and orchid flower salad with silkworms and mole crickets. Then come scallop and scorpion with cactus and prickly pair, followed by a calf's head, for the guests to share, with apples and Calvados; and then, a filet of colin (kind of like a pollack)
